Outside: Giant Trance X4 "Best $1500 Mountain Bike"

Visit and you’ll find a review from staff writer Aaron Gulley that takes a look at the best budget mountain bikes, with the Giant Trance X4 taking the honors in the $1,500 range -- and just imagine how much they'd like it knowing we've marked the Trance X4 (size M in stock at Century Cycles - Medina) down to $1,399.99?
Gulley says, “We’ve long said that buying a full-suspension mountain bike for under $2,000 is a waste of money, but the Trance X4 proves us wrong…A carbon copy of the frames used in its higher-end siblings…with nicer parts than you’d expect…it ripped up the trails – especially downhill…we launched down rocky singletrack peppered with boulders and jumps and the X4 took it all in stride…this is the most hardworking and agile setup we’ve found at this price.”

Of the budget mountain bikes reviewed for this article, including models from Diamondback and Jamis, the Trance X4 stood out, “…out of the three in this review, it’s the one novice riders are least likely to outgrow anytime soon.”
